Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild

This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

UPP - Unfinished Project Project

Here's a note from Leola who has the Weaving/Spinning Studio behind the \Loom at WhippleTree:
February 26th and 27th marks the second annual Unfinished Project Project - UPP for creativity anyone???  10 - 3. This year we are having it at Whippletree Junction in the courtyard, right behind the Loom and near Leola's Studio. There is an empty store and the landlady has graciously offered it to us to use. So same format as last year except over two days - that gives everyone an opportunity to join in. Bring your projects with you to trade, finish or give away, start a new project, join in a few unfinished cooperative efforts, or just come and enjoy the company. Bring a mug, your lunch, some fibre to trade, and perhaps a pillow for the chairs. Rumour has it we might have a massage therapist on site to ease our hardworking muscles. There will be a silent auction as well and all proceeds go to the Somenos Transition House in Duncan - we are people helping women and children. Last year we made almost $600 which went to a children's art activity area in the shelter. All textile artists or artists seeking out a new medium are welcome, weavers, knitters, crocheters, quilters, spinners etc. Tell all your friends. And if you have something to donate to the Silent Auction please let me know - Be UPP for inspiration, exhilaration and creation!!! My phone number is 250 701-7340 or at the Loom 250 746-5250
Although not up-to-date, I managed to work on my blog this early early morning - so if there are errors (I couldn't seem to edit it after I posted it...I will try later) please forgive me.
Hope to see you at the above events and if not there in the studio. Thanks so much for being so supportive - my life and studio are richer for your support.
Leola
